18-Year-Old Killed By Wheel on I-65 Near Clarksville

A wheel which came off a vehicle traveling southbound on I-65 resulted in the fatality of a northbound motorist.

The preliminary investigation reveals that at approximately 12:50 pm this afternoon, Peter D. Gaetano, 51, of Covert, Michigan was driving his blue, 2016 GMC pickup truck southbound near the 2.8 mile marker when the rear driver’s side wheel came off his vehicle as he was traveling in the third lane of I-65 just north of Eastern Boulevard. After breaking loose from the vehicle, the wheel became airborne, crossing over the concrete median wall and into the northbound lanes of I-65. The wheel collided with a white Chevrolet pick-up truck driven by Olivia Kustes,18, of Rineyville, Kentucky, causing fatal injuries. The pickup truck continued north into the righthand emergency lane and appeared not to be stopping. A commercial vehicle driver, Alvin P. Logan, 45, Chicago, Illinois, realized the vehicle was not stopping and placed his semi-truck in front of the vehicle driven by Kustes and slowly brought it to a stop on the right side of the interstate.

Clarksville City Police units were first to arrive on scene and requested the aid of Indiana State Police crash reconstructionists who are investigating the crash.

The two right-hand lanes of I-65 northbound remained closed until approximately 4:00 pm.

Olivia Kustes was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.

The Indiana State Police were assisted by units from the Clarksville Police Department, the Clarksville Fire Department, the Clark County Coroner’s Office, and the Indiana Department of Transportation.

Sen. Houchin Responds to Governor’s Address

State Sen. Erin Houchin (R-Salem) made the following statement in response to Gov. Eric Holcomb’s 2019 State of the State address:

“I was encouraged this evening to hear that Gov. Holcomb’s vision for 2019 includes improving access to both affordable high-speed broadband as well as quality treatment for those addicted to opioids, both of which are issues that greatly affect residents of Senate District 47.

“There are more than 500 Suboxone providers across our state treating those with opioid addictions, yet they do not have to conform to regulations like other opioid treatment providers do. It is crucial we put guardrails in place to help ensure these office-based opioid treatment providers are providing quality, effective treatment that helps those who fight addiction. This is why I authored Senate Bill 141, which would create a framework of regulations for these programs to help the public distinguish the good clinics from the bad and ensure responsible spending of Medicaid dollars.

“Along with the governor and my colleagues in the General Assembly, I look forward to improving our state through these and other initiatives this session.”

All Delphi Murder Investigation Tips are Investigated; Police Say

After recent speculation about a suspect in another crime who may resemble sketches of the suspect in the murders of two girls in Delphi, Indiana, the Indiana State Police are reminding the public they investigate every tip.

The Delphi multi-agency investigative team has received multiple inquiries about a man arrested Jan. 8 in Randolph County for allegations of sex crimes against children and whether or not he is connected to the Delphi case.

Charles Eldridge, 46, was arrested for child molestation, and many people noted the resemblance between him and the sketch of the person suspected of killing Abby Williams and Libby German in February of 2017.

Eldridge’s mugshot and the sketch of the Delphi murder suspect are featured in the photo above.

As of Jan. 11, investigators were saying it was too early to make any connection, and they were not calling Eldridge a person of interest in the Delphi murders.

At the request of the Delphi multi-agency investigative team, which consists of members of the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department, the FBI and the Indiana State Police, the following information is being provided to the public and media:

The Delphi multi-agency investigative team, and participating agencies continue to receive media and public inquiries asking about the person arrested January 8, 2019, in Union City, Randolph County Indiana for allegations of sexually related crimes against children and if he is connected to the Delphi investigation. 

The team is aware of this arrest and will investigate to see if there could be any connection to the murders that occurred in Delphi, Indiana on February 14th of 2017. 

It is important for the public and media to know that many similar tips and arrests of other persons alleged to be connected to the Delphi murders occur with some frequency in and outside of Indiana. 

Each tip – whether it receives media attention or not – is investigated for any connection to the Delphi case. 

That said, members of the Delphi multi-agency investigative team do not speak to specific actions or steps of the ongoing investigation. 

Capt. Dave Bursten, the Chief Public Information Officer for the Indiana State Police, commented, “We know it’s hard for the public and media to resist posting side-by-side comparisons on social media of people who are alleged to have committed heinous crimes and also resemble the sketch of the Delphi murder suspect.” Bursten continued.

“The only positive result from these actions is it keeps this open investigation in the mind of the public.  What we really appreciate is when the public submits their tip information to either the tip email address of [email protected]  or calls the tip line at (844) 459-5786 to pass along their information.” 

Bursten concluded, “I can promise you this, when an arrest is made of a suspect identified by the multi-agency investigative team as the alleged perpetrator of the Delphi Murders, rest assured, we will let everyone know.”
